Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare...


Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well--until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he's determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.

But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won't be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her... down to the very soul.

This is the first book in a series of six. I enjoyed this book and read it over the weekend. Certainly an item I would recommend for lovers of romance.

Highly recommend. I first started with the last book, then realized it was a series and put down to pick up this book. At first I wasn't sure I would like the characters. It all seemed a little too convenient, but then you get wrapped up in the characters and how fallible they are. They aren't perfect and make mistakes and realize they make mistakes. Which makes the development of a relationship more interesting and natural. Lovely little romance book.

3/9 - Damn internet ate my review last night and I can not be bothered rewriting it completely, so I'll just give you the highlights.

I LOVED this book.
This book was as good as Moonlight on Nightingale Way.
I enjoyed getting to properly meet characters I only saw glimpses of in Moonlight on Nightingale Way.
The addition of Ellie and Adam's side romance was great.
I found Ellie's diagnosis with a brain tumour hard to deal with considering the discovery of my own tumour. It was more traumatic to read of her diagnosis and resulting surgery than it was to read the parts when Jocelyn broke up with Braden.
This second book (for me) of the series was so good it's got me contemplating buying the whole series (at a discounted price, of course, from one of my favourite online second hand bookstores, Fishpond, Book Depository, or eBay).

Okay, that's it. That's the gist of what I wrote last night, in a condensed version. Can't wait to get to the next one.

Looking for an adult romance with an alpha male lead? Try On Dublin Street by Samantha Young. A contemporary story set in Scotland about an independent American woman named Jocelyn struggling to find her way. She meets Braden, a handsome and wealthy man determined to win her over. The story is emotional, romantic and sure to please fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Beautiful Disaster. Recommended by K.H., Seville Library, MCDL

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK! I picked it up one afternoon and had finished reading it early the next morning. I lost some hours of sleep, though it was much worth it, I tremendously enjoyed the book. I even shed a tear or 2 when reading this. The characters were so awesome and it just made me place the next books on hold. DEFINITELY worth the read.

Love This Book! This kicks of a really great series from this author... Dublin Street is definitely one of my favorites. The characters and their journey captured me and kept me all through the story. It's fun, romantic, sexy, hot and heartfelt

Absolutely love, love, love this book. The characters draw you in, and next thing you know you've finished the book in record time. Cannot wait to read the rest of the series and the continuation of the Joss and Braden story...newly published. Hopefully the library will get all of this authors books. She is my new favourite author!

A great first adult fiction novel from this author. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I tried not to compare too much to other 50 Shades-type books. I hope the author writes more novels like these. I'd read this one again!
